English and Drama
Students spend time in the outdoors exploring poetry inspired by nature to consider the purpose of the writing and the intended audience. They will learn new vocabulary and terminology associated with the natural world. Time is then dedicated to immersing the senses to be able to record the sounds, sights, smells and textures of nature before using these description to compose their own poem. Suitbale for Key stage 3 and 4.
